Publisher's Summary

In this Audible Session we hear two interviews, first with the author and then with the narrator of Their Lost Daughters - the first book in an exciting new thriller series. 

Their Lost Daughters takes place on the muddy fields and the long stretching beaches of the Lincolnshire Fens. A teenage girl is found wandering, delirious, claiming to have been drugged at a party. Metres away, the drowned body of another girl is found on an isolated beach. And all this on a small stretch of land where, nearly 10 years ago, the shocking disappearance of a young girl remains an open case. 

Our author, Joy Ellis, is a florist turned novelist who gets her police procedural writing spot on with help from her retired police officer partner Jacqueline. They live together in the Fens, where Joy’s novels are based, and the eeriness of the setting constantly creeps through in Joy’s stories. Joy is kind, down to earth and unassuming - yet with a bright and vast imagination which sees her write horrible crimes and horrific murders, and we solve these in her books alongside detective duo Rowan Jackman and Marie Evans. When we went to chat to Joy in the Fens, she introduced us to her characters, told us how Sue Townsend got her into writing, and revealed why Richard Armitage is the perfect Jackman. 

Our narrator, Richard Armitage, is a skilled and experienced actor - bringing characters to life on stage, on screen, and where we love to experience his baritone voice the most, in audiobooks. He’s known for his roles in The Hobbit and Robin Hood (to name only two), but in Their Lost Daughters he brings a whole cast of characters to life. When we met him in Audible’s Berlin studios for a chat, he spoke about his meeting with author Joy, how he mastered the Lincolnshire accent for this series, and told us about one particularly 'butt-clenching' audition.

Richard Armitage and Joy Ellis audible session

This was delighted to listen, what kind of a woman is behind the book that is dark, haunting and keeps you biting your nails while you dwell yourself into that world. Also Richard's interview how he tacked with this was interesting to hear. ❤️

Gripping stuff!

I am an avid reader and was a bit worried that I might not get into this as quickly as I might if I read myself so I thought I'd just have a concentrated half hour's listening to get started......four hours later after I had gardened, done paperwork, housework and sat in the car on my own so as not to be disturbed!! The book is both gripping and disturbing and the plot twists and turns throughout. It has well-created characters and three dimensional and believable detectives and Richard Armitage's reading brings them all to life! Evocative settings add to the suspense: cannot wait for the next one!

Brilliant interview

This is a brilliant interview with one of the Fen's greatest living authors.

The interview gives a great insight into the mind of Joy Ellis and how she thought about and wrote her latest book, whch I have bought and will be listening to shortly.
